The goals are:

  • To dispel common myths surrounding family violence
  • To provide a non-threatening environment to talk about feelings and help teach healthy ways to express anger, hurt, fear, etc.
  • To let children know that they are not alone, and to help them share their thoughts and feelings with others from similar family situations.
  • To define abuse (physical, emotional, verbal and sexual) and to let the children know their personal rights
  • To teach problem solving and coping skills
  • To identify the causes and effects of conflict
  • Includes Safety Planning to create personal safety plans, to identify and develop support networks
